Kitty Daisy & Lewis
“Have you heard of Kitty Daisy & Lewis -they're f***ing amazing” Chris Martin
This London based trio of siblings is one act you HAVE to see this Bluesfest. It’s hard not to get too excited just writing about them. Their music is a splendid, genre bending mix of dirty R'n'B & blues, whiskey soaked country, haunting Hawaiian jungle drums , Ska and Gospel fever with a punch in the face by Daisy's hard beat boxing.
All in their early 20’s, Kitty Daisy & Lewis (KDL) have been playing from a very young age, playing any instrument they could lay their hands on, which is why you will see them happily all take turns on vocals and swap around their instruments on stage which range from drums, piano, guitar, lap steel, banjos, ukulele, accordion, xylophone, trombone, the list goes on.
With a fan base that includes Coldplay, Brian Eno, Dustin Hoffman, Ewan McGregor, and supports for Coldplay , Razorlight, Richard Hawley and Jools Holland, you can’t help but be impressed by their achievements for such a young age. The trio have also recently recorded a new track especially for the Warner Movie ‘Gangster Squad’ called ‘A Little Bird Told Me’.
Their latest album Smoking In Heaven was recorded in true KDL form, with the production and the recording being done in their Vintage Studio at home, using ribbon microphones and analogue tape formats without the use of computers, Jamaican Ska legends Eddie “Tan Tan’ Thornton and Rico Rodriguez appeared on the album which received rave reviews;
‘Fizzes with the simple joy of creation – bloody great’ NME
‘Inspires even the uncoordinated to shake their tail feather’ Time Out
